Had a somewhat serious talk at the company today, discussing the future, ways to expand, ways to cope, ways to optimize our current business model and actually progress...

I wonder if I contribute to the stagnation.

I hope not.

We're just in an unfortunate situation where large players are entering our niche, and we don't have the resources to match; can't have as much in stock; can't order as large quantities to keep down prices; can't market ourselves enough.

Most of all: don't have the same resources to invest in better servers and website optimization as they do.

Driving a small company's hard business, it is. Hopefully it all works out though. We get by, we're just not growing fast enough. Don't have the resources to spare or hire.
